Information & Ratings on Creve Coeur Manor (Violations)
Your loved one deserves only the very best in medical and overall care as they age and are no longer able to care for themselves. In order to obtain this care for them, it is sometimes necessary to entrust them to a skilled nursing facility. One would hope and expect that the nursing home where your loved one resides takes their obligations to their residents seriously.
Unfortunately, that does not always happen. There are just some nursing homes out there, that for whatever reason, cannot or will not provide their residents with the appropriate care. In some instances, this can cross the line to being abuse or neglect. Contact us at the Nursing Home Law Center and we can help you address this situation if it is impacting your loved one and family.
The Creve Coeur Manor home is a 149 certified bed facility that provides care to residents of the Greater Saint Louis area. This is a Medicare and Medicaid certified facility that provides long and short stay care for residents. It has a for-profit owner and it is located at:
1127 Timber Run Dr
St. Louis, MO 63146
Many nursing home residents rely on Medicare or Medicaid to pay the costs of their residency and care at the skilled nursing facility. These government agencies just simply do not remit payments to the nursing homes with no questions asked. Instead, they have regulations and they verify that the facilities are complying with these rules so that they can pay the homes. Thus, there is a process where the homes are inspected and any citations or significant issues with care are noted.
In addition, Medicare rates skilled nursing facilities on a five-star system, with one-star being the lowest rating. Medicare also assigns ratings in four subfactors to measure how the nursing home performs in various areas.
The Creve Coeur Manor received a one-star overall ratings based on a high preponderance of deficiencies that have been noted in its inspection reports. The facility also received a one-star rating for staffing. The Creve Coeur Manor falls short when it comes to the amount of staff that they have on hand. The facility has only 36 minutes of licensed nurse staff hours per resident per day. This is just over a third of the national average for skilled nursing facilities. This indicates that the facility is critically understaffed, which can lead to lapses in care for its residents. In addition, there are only two minutes of Physical therapist staff hours per resident per day, which is strikingly below the national average of seven minutes.
The latest federal inspection report for Creve Coeur Manor resulted in 25 separate citations for the facility. The citations are too numerous to recount in detail, but one of the major areas noted was a failure to conduct the proper assessment of a resident's condition and adjust treatment plans accordingly. The facility also did not effectively implement the assessments if they were conducted.
In one specific instance, a resident was found on the floor after falling. A greenish/purple bruise was found on their arm 11 days later. X-rays were ordered nearly a week and a half after the fall and the facility did not receive the results of the x-rays for five days after they were ordered. In other words, the resident went two weeks from the date of the fall until the fracture was confirmed and properly treated.
The previous inspection report from 2017 also contained 12 citations. This is nearly double the national average. This brings the total of citations in the last two federal inspections to 37. In addition, the state of Missouri has issued three citations to the facility in the past three years.
Medicare has also instituted a new program whereby it penalizes homes that have high rates of hospitalization among residents. This specific program can withhold up to two percent of the total Medicare payment to the nursing home if there is a higher than average rate of hospitalization. The Creve Coeur Manor home was penalized nearly the maximum of two percent based on the number of residents who required hospital stays. The number of hospitalizations per 1,000 long-stay resident days is nearly fifty percent above the national average and well above the Missouri average as well.Get Legal Help Now Have More Questions Regarding Creve Coeur Manor?
